Queen’s Platinum Jubliee, 2nd June 2022

Posted on

Once again, the NRA and Northwood Hills RA joined forces to put on a community afternoon of entertainment – remember Music & Picnic in the Park in 2016?

We kicked off the programme with 50s rock and 60s pop from Olde Skool a group of local musicians. The Polka Dots’ close harmony and dance routines were a hit with everyone. Then came Cuttlefish, three impressive young men who write their own material.  CJ Edwards band certainly got everyone up and dancing as promised, a superb performance rounded off with an audience singalong to ‘Sweet Caroline’. Yiewsley and West Drayton Brass Band completed the programme with popular classics and accompanied us in The National Anthem.

The Worshipful the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor Becky Haggar came hot-foot from the Civic Centre proclamation event to address our event, and the representative Deputy Lieutenant for Hillingdon, Bruce Houlder gave a closing speech.

Many thanks to our two comperes, who kept us entertained with the banter between acts, Lynne Halse and David Yarrow.
